Label Stickers and Stamps

Recommended Posts

We all must have records with sticker removal marks and tears.

However, there are certain Stickers that I either don't mind being on the label or expect to find.

I have seen a few Hollywood press Charger for The "In" Crowd and would expect to find the sticker still attached.

Yes thanks Peter, hope you are too.

The records are as I received them and I would normally go for a pristine label.

Stickers or Stamps placed around the time of release for promotion I don't mind seeing.

Not sure if the Radio Station or Rep would have stamped "THIS SIDE PLEASE"

Now that is nice, l never got my hands on a WD in my collecting days.

It would have looked nice next to "Let's Get Into Something"

Wow The Allstate Record Distributing Company in Chicago.

When people often talk about wishing they had some sort of time machine which could transport them backwards through time here's a place I'd have loved to have spent a couple o' weeks wandering about in.

Somewhere in this big wide world of ours somebody will have a drawer full of crumpled black n white photographs of this place (inside and out) but I ain't seen them yet. Even checked out those 'Memories From Old Chicago" forum type threads.....

I've a few with personal names and address stickers on, having time on my hands now I'm retired I've looked them up on google maps

I thought I was the only odd ball that did this - phew thank you.

I agree Derek It would be brilliant to travel back to the time when they were active.

Here's another ALLSTATE.

I had to take a photo rather than a scan in order to pick out the vibrant orange sticker.

After writing this a few days ago I must've started thinking about which people might have actually taken photographs of places like this way back in the early seventies.

And the name I kept coming back to was John Anderson.

As far as I know he was one of the first from the UK to start hoovering up old unwanted vinyl from across the states on an industrial level.

For him it was business and I guess he was far too busy to even think about taking photographs.

But I imagine photgraphs would have been taken by those in the early waves of Brits abroad as it would be like a dream come true for many.

Oh to be surrounded by thousands of 45's in a warehouse in the middle of nowhere.

Derek

But until we actually see those photographs I guess we'll never know. They're out there somewhere I know it.

A bit like original amateur video footage from the inside of Wigan Casino......or The Torch or even The Wheel.

The two above have a "COAST TO COAST" stamp on them.

Got a Junior Walker with the very same stamp.

Not averse to date stamps and similar as it adds to the provenance..

Here's a couple from my box.

The Barbara Acklin one always puzzled me, thought if it had been a sample would have just been a demo copy?

I have just picked this one up from CANADA. It has the same style of sticker with slightly different proportions.

It is a U.S.A press, just wondering if some Brunswick were Promoted that way in certain areas when DEMO copies were not to hand.

Does anyone know what these Chips stickers were all about? I have a lovely white promo of "What's Going On" on e-bay right now with a Chips sticker but a different name on it...........
